What is the shape of an amoeba?
An Amoeba has no definite shape or size because it uses amoeboid movement as a form of locomotion. In other words, the amoeba deforms its body into projections called pseudopods, or "false feet", which act like arms or feet (in a way) that slide over the surface the amoeba is currently on, later pulling the rest of the body and its organelles behind it. This process repeats all the time, only different parts of the amoeba are used as it's pseudopods, giving it, as I previously stated, no definite shape.
